Even though Jurassic 5 MC Chalí 2NA is still on the mend following a bus accident, the Los Angeles hip-hop collective has announced plans to team up with Dilated Peoples, the Beat Junkies and MC Supernatural for the Word of Mouth tour.
Jurassic 5 were forced to pull out of the final week of the Vans Warped Tour 2000 after Chalí 2NA and bandmates Marc 7even and Akil were hurt in the accident, which occurred while the group was traveling from Nashville to Houston. Chalí 2NA underwent surgery for a fractured skull, but he is expected to recover in time for the Word of Mouth launch, Sept. 13 in Los Angeles.
Jurassic 5 are on the road to support their new album, Quality Control, which has sold more than 145,000 copies since its release in June. The Word of Mouth tour has confirmed dates only for the first seven concerts; additional shows will be added in the next few days.
